Scientific disciplines are well known for their grounding in objectivity and fact-driven research practices. As a result, it is easy to assume that new educational initiatives such as ‘decolonising the curriculum’ are not relevant in our fields. This session seeks to make the case that the opposite is true. In order to maintain our reputation, we must re-evaluate how we do and teach science, particularly to serve, include and elevate the most marginalised in our disciplines.
